While the tradition of gift-giving is more of an art than a science, there are certain elements to the process within your control no matter your level of creativity or skill. Timing, for example, is key when it comes to successfully getting the right gift to the right person on the right occasion — especially during this period of uncertainty where shipping delays, both international and domestic, are to be expected. And with May 10th fast approaching, you’ll want to plan accordingly when shopping for Mother’s Day.
The best Mother’s Day gifts are the ones that come from the heart, and there’s no better way to show mom just how much you care than by engraving, printing, embroidering, even emblazoning her very own name or initials onto her present. You may not be able to give it to her in person this year, but this extra level of personalization is the next best thing. The possibilities for personalization may be abundant, but these things take time (sometimes weeks!) to order, prepare, and ship, so we implore you to stay on top of your gifting game this season if you want to go the customization route. Ahead, find a selection of 23 items that can be personalized before Mother’s Day rolls around so that no present is left un-monogrammed this year.
